Falcons Vs. Bears Halftime Score: Chicago Defense, Special Teams Having Big Day

The defense and special teams of the Chicago Bears are making the offense's life easy at Soldier Field, and Jay Cutler is capitalizing. Aided by two Atlanta Falcons turnovers and some great returns by Devin Hester, Jay Cutler is having a massive day, throwing for 222 yards and a touchdown with no turnovers. At halftime, the Bears lead the Falcons by a score of 16-3.

Matt Ryan has one bad interception - thrown to Brian Urlacher - but has been solid otherwise, completing 14 of 17 passes. Michael Turner has been effective as well, racking up 65 yards on nine total touches. Atlanta's turnovers and kick coverage have killed them, though, which is why they trail by two scores in a game that is actually fairly even.
